Jumping in on this thread; Have never been able to get midi's to play.
Amazing that there are misspelled words in a config file. I have
TiMidity installed. Not sure about KMid. Didn't know that it existed.
What KDE package is that in?
Followed the recommendations above, except that I don't know what file
that is to change rawmidi to port O.
Some clarification would really be appreciated.
PS running 8.2 and KDE3.2.3
